It’s thought he may have slipped on ice and snow at Clogwyn Coch.

A coastguard rescue helicopter flew eight Llanberis mountain rescue team volunteers up the mountain to recover the victim.

A male had slipped on ice and snow and fallen from the railway track in to Clogwyn Coch, some 250metres.

Within 15 minutes of the male falling, one of our team doctors was on scene and could confirm that the male was deceased.

Due to the seriousness of the incident the team requested the assistance of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency rescue helicopter.

Eight team members were airlifted up to Clogwyn station and made their way up to the team doctor and casualty.

Once on scene the casualty was secured and lowered down the Llanberis path to a point where the helicopter was able to return and recover the casualty to hospital.
